Three guesses; two don’t count !!

It’s an oven outdoors and indoors!! I’m so discouraged, I want to bawl!! I really believed the A/C repair had resolved the problem. I was gone all morning: Pancake breakfast, a seminar, and lunch. This is what I experienced walking across the driveway, stepping into my trailer home. Repeat: I’m so discouraged, I want to bawl!!

    They should come back. Ask them if they checked the power coming into your rig from the park, if it’s sufficient. Have them check your plug and make sure the prongs are clean and not bent, burned, etc. Ask them if they checked the power at the breaker inside your rig, and it’s getting the correct amount of power. Did they make sure there are no loose connections there, and no damaged wire? Ask them if it’s a 15 or 20 amp. If 15, would swapping it to a 20 help? Is it next to the main breaker? Could that be contributing to it overheating? Did they go on the roof, remove the cover, and make sure nothing is obstructing flow to the condenser/evaporator coils? I wouldn’t think so, so soon on a new unit, but I’d ask. Do you have an electric water heater or could other things drawing power be contributing to the breaker popping? That would be especially important if your rig is 30 amp and not 50. Good luck!

    • Deb, a concise answer to your concise comment.

      They should come back. (Agree.) Ask them if they checked the power coming into your rig from the park, if it’s sufficient. (They did not check…, I was watching them “work.”) Have them check your plug and make sure the prongs are clean and not bent, burned, etc (Great suggestion.). Ask them if they checked the power at the breaker inside your rig, and it’s getting the correct amount of power. (They didn’t use a meter at the breakers.) Did they make sure there are no loose connections there, and no damaged wire? (Perhaps “yes” at the A/C on the roof.) Ask them if it’s a 15 or 20 amp. If 15, would swapping it to a 20 help? (It’s 20 amp.) Is it next to the main breaker? (No.) Could that be contributing to it overheating? Did they go on the roof, remove the cover, and make sure nothing is obstructing flow to the condenser/evaporator coils? (Two men on the roof for ten minutes or more.) I wouldn’t think so, so soon on a new unit, but I’d ask. Do you have an electric water heater or could other things drawing power be contributing to the breaker popping? (My handyman, Jim, thought of that a week ago and we turned off the switch for electric hot water heater. Hot water heater breaker side-by-side with A/C breaker.) That would be especially important if your rig is 30 amp and not 50. Good luck! (Frankly, I don’t know if 50 amp or 30 amp; I would hope and pray 50 amp.)

      Sincere THANKS for your time and possible resolve of the problem.
